Defective Machines or Products Injuries


Legal Services:

Many serious injuries occur at work on defective, unsafe or unguarded machinery or equipment. Injured workers may have a third party liability claim for their injuries and losses against the manufacturer, distributor or seller of defective, unsafe machinery and equipment.


Manufacturers and sellers of dangerous machines, equipment and goods can be sued for negligence under various circumstances, including:

  • Failure to guard nip points on industrial machinery

  • Failure to inspect or test the product before placing it on the market

  • Creating a flaw in the product

  • Failing to discover a design flaw in a product

  • Failure to discover that the product could be dangerous

  • Failure to warn or adequately warn of a risk or hazard associated with the product

  • Breach of warranty

  • Failure to guard against injury or unsafe use

  • Failure to install safety cut-off or emergency stops

The seller and manufacturer can also be sued for strict product liability. Here, proof of negligence is not necessary  so long as it can be shown that the product was defective and unreasonably dangerous, you may be able to recover.


Holding manufactures accountable encourages safer machines and products for everyone.

Smith & Griffith, LLP represents all injured employees including illegal aliens or undocumented aliens.
